Great Day in the Morning
 
:whistling: Ah, I love mornings here in Nevada--

Most of you know my typical mornings, (couple times a week) and

Being a Monday, I went to our local casino and invested $100 and got my second Royal Flush, playing Video Poker (nickels-max bet--$1.00 buck)-

I mean my second in two months ($800 bucks)-

Now I'll have some coffee and then go shoot !

Have a great day !

:dance::rofl: JIMBO

JeeperJake 04-09-2012 10:01 AM

....that's a lot of shooting and coffee.....

congratulations!

I love the smell of napalm in the morning. That's why I've spent the last 35 years in a chemical Plant.

JIMBOX 04-09-2012 10:17 AM

:D heh Heh, yeah--thanx guys-

If you play video poker--I've found, over the years and a lotta Royal Flushs-

Monday morning, or the morning after a Holiday--and a far left/ far right machine, especially atta bar--or machine row--is the best !

If you're lucky an attendant will tell you ( you hafta ask),which ones gotta Royal that weekend--stay away fromem--

:dance::rofl: JIMBO

Well no luck for me at the casino lately, but my wife kept us even.
As for shooting, Saturday we spent some time at the range with a buddy who teaches concealed carry classes, and is a completive shooter. So we both got some quality tune ups in our shooting. Nothing like a good day at the range, or in your case the desert!

JIMBOX 04-09-2012 12:17 PM

:D Ya win some/ ya loss some-shooting and the concetration involved--takes all the worries away--

I may have to replace the waterpump first--there is a very slight "LEAK" outta the bottom WP bolt and I found both bottom bolts, a little loose from the factory ( kinds like me) and thats weird, cause they use KING KONG to tighten all the other bolts-

I'll give it a looksee every day for a while--as far as "toys", I haven't got any planned, but we'll see-

Good day willee

what do you have in mind...? I'm a young whippersnapper and would like to know the stereotypes of my generation. :D test me!

Matador 04-10-2012 11:19 AM

Jim, there are still a bunch of us mid-young whippersnappers who can appreciate a good story or two from an old timer. On that note, here is a quick funny story. I was sent to Skip Barber's racing school for a weekend a few years back. The majority of the instructors and students were in their early 20's. There were however two older (60+) retired race instructors. After class we would hit some local bars with the instructors, I purposely wanted to hang back with the "old timers" as they rattled off a bunch of great racing stories (including racing a track car down residential streets during an engine "check" and being chased by motorcycle cops that eventually drove into a neighbors pool). From that day forward I always take the time and look out for old timers, take a seat and listen to what they have to say.
